mima presents a major touring exhibition by renowned British artist Carey Young. The show features a variety of works in video, photography and text to explore ideas of rhetoric, protest and performance in the light of economic globalisation and the rise of legalistic culture.
The new commission Memento Park (2010), a video shot in the suburban environs of Budapest's Soviet statue park, extends these interests into a subtle meditation on propaganda and contemporary leftist identity.
Commissioned by mima, Eastside Projects, Birmingham and Cornerhouse, Manchester. mima's resident young people (TMT) have responded to Carey's work. See our project space on the second floor to find out what they did.
Please note: The event space may occasionally be in use for private functions, on these occasions the video Memento Park will not be available. To check availability and avoid disappointment please call mima reception on 01642 726720
